• To raise awareness of the issue of trafficking in persons

  • To work in collaboration with others for the prevention of the trafficking of women and children for sexual exploitation.

  • To achieve this purpose, APT does the following:

  • Focuses on developing links with networks of religious women and men in countries of origin of victims and countries of destination

  • Networks with other similarly committed organisations and action groups, nationally and internationally

  • Looks for ways to raise public awareness of the issue by offering presentations about human trafficking to schools, parishes and groups

  • Seeks ways to protect the rights of victims of trafficking

  • Works with other groups to address the issue of demand for purchased sex, which fuels the trade in human trafficking

  • Prays and encourages others to pray for those trafficked, for traffickers and for an end to this great violation of human rights.
